An embedded system is a special-purpose computer system, which is completely encapsulated by the device it controls-Engineering Stuff. Meanwhile, according to Wikipedia, an embedded system is a computer system within a large mechanical or electrical system, often with real-time computing constraints.
In the industrial world, embedded systems, both computers and machinery systems are very important. One example are drilling machines that function to help workers to store digital data and speed up production process.
If you are a factory owner who is confused in choosing the right embedded systems, consider buying several embedded systems below:
MiniITX CPC81410 is a new Intel 22nm Ivy Bridge processor. It is also one of the best embedded applications from Fastwel. This processor can be operated within this temperature range: -40Â°C to +85Â°C. Besides, it is equipped with VGA, DVID, LVDS, HDMI, 1 x PCIe x1, 1 x Mini PCIe, 1 x PCI, 4 x SATA, 8 x USB, 6 x COM, 2 x DDRIII SODIMM up to 8 GB, 8bit DIO, and wide power input from 9 V to 24 V DC.
Mini CPC81410 can be used for drilling machines, drilling rigs, and CNC machine applications. For more information, visit www.fastwel.com.
On fastwel.com, you can also buy CompactPCI CPC502 which is an Intel Pentium M processor up to 1.8 GHz. It has up to 1 GB RAM (Random Access Memory) as its storage media. This processor can run within this temperature range: 0Â°C to +70Â°C (commercial) and-40Â°C to +85Â°C (industrial). There is two gigabit Ethernet ports on internal PCI-X bus, two USB 2.0 ports, two SATA interface, smart temperature control, stand-alone operating without backplane, wide range of mezzanine, and rear I/O modules that support CompactPCI CPC502â€™s performance.
This embedded system is usually used in industrial automation, instrumentation, medical, telecommunications, and other mission critical applications.
Similar to CompactPCI CPC502, VME CPC600 is also used in general industrial automation. It is an Intel Pentium M processor up to 1.8 GHz that is supported by four gigabit Ethernet ports, six USB 2.0 ports, soldered disk up to 1 GB, two serial ATA channels, VITA 31 conformance, and IPMI. In industrial, it can survive from -40Â°C to +85Â°C. Besides, it is equipped with watchdog timer, temperature monitoring, supply voltages, etc. to speed up the process.
Having these embedded systems you can increase factoryâ€™s productivity. If you need more, view more here.
